    Gearbox whine / slight noise

    Mine seems to come from the gearstick area the description above is spot on, so god knows what it is , I’ll get the gearbox oil changed anyway to see if it makes a difference

    Gearbox whine / slight noise

    Car has 120,000 on the clock , had 2 oil changes in the last 12 months, noise is a bit hard to describe, bit like a constant grumble , moving the gearstick when driving changes the pitch a little , but it’s there constantly, no change in noise when accelerating, I’ll try the clutch pedal later ,
  3. Hi, I’ve got what seems a a whine on the gearbox, definitely not the timing chain, no rattle at all, does a manual gearbox require an oil change or service at all? Probably nothing but just aware of the noise when driving

    Fuse gone

    Replaced the fuse , eventually and after dropping one somewhere inside , read the faults with ista , don’t think there was anything directly for the srs but all cleared and no more faults, some of these are old except the rail pressure one and the obvious electrical ones

    Fuse gone

    There are no other electrical faults as yet ,I’ll get ista on it tomorrow

    Fuse gone

    Thanks for that , just wanted confirmation, the srs warning came on as soon as the trip happened?? A couple of other forums bought up the same fault and errors etc, I can clear the faults with ista, bloody stupid place for a fuse box!! Got hands like shovels so it’ll be fun, got a mate with girlie hands so I’ll get him to do it, keeping a safe distance obviously, thanks

    Fuse gone

    Hi, changing the interior bulbs to led, I’ve changed one vanity bulb , which is the one in the roof lining when you pull down the sun visor, I have however shorted one of them, got a seat belt restraint error showing and obviously no vanity bulbs working , which fuse has gone ? Dr google seems to think fuse no 32 which is 7,5a the fuse booklet in the boot gives 32 for other stuff too, haven’t got the smallest hands and the glove box access is small at best , any help will be hugely appreciated

    Textar Epad Brake Pads any opinions

    I would have liked to have had a go , did them on an old x trail once and think these would have ok to do also , but flat work wise so had a local garage do the work and a service , I supplied the parts etc and he charged £180! So next time it’s on the drive ! I’ve used him before do at least it’s done right

    Textar Epad Brake Pads any opinions

    Just changed front discs and pads and rear pads and used Borg and beck premium used some googling and got it all for less than £160 ! Just lucky on the deals on eBay , more than happy with them
  10. I’ve had the same problem a few times , mines a 2012 520d , after a lot of googling it seemed to be small turbo having an issue with the dpf not regenerating, once I’d forced a regen with ista it cleared the problem , I’ve also had a dpf fault which I’m told is a mileage error not a faulty dpf, I regularly do a forced regen if I’m not sure it’s done it itself and have no more probs

    Oil on block paving removal

    The blocks only go one way , by the time you’ve scrubbed and bought or wasted cleaner it would have been quicker and cheaper to buy a few single blocks , remove the offending ones and replace and tap down with a rubber mallet , easy !

    Oil on block paving removal

    Dpf replacement?

    So if I go into ista and register the dpf as new I will then be able to delete the error ? I’ll check the back pressure later today and see what that is, other wise the car is running well and no physical dpf issues

    Dpf replacement?

    I’ve also got a battery fault , saying it needs to be replaced or is faulty , and is there any reason why the dpf fault cant be deleted??

    Dpf replacement?

    I’ve done a forced regen this afternoon, checked with ista when I got to work and it’s says the dpf soot mass is 2.0g ? A quick google says it’s ok ? But still can’t clear the fault code , so I’ve set it do another forced regen for the return trip , then I’ll check it tomorrow, saw an ad for a Dr carbon clean in the midlands, seems to be a franchise but only charge £89! Loads of 5 star reviews, hopefully genuine , so he might be a call at some point , got no dash errors thought , only an ista error
